Special minimized latency Bluetooth technology eliminates time lag. Many devices that come with Bluetooth may be outdated and slow, but the WIDI BUD is designed to have minimal latency specifically for playing music. This is possible due to the specialized software inside the dongle’s firmware using the latest Bluetooth. Most prepackaged Bluetooth replies on drivers which are depended on the hard drive and increase lag.
No need to worry about drivers, language settings, 32 or 64 bit issues or slow hard drives. WIDI BUD just plugs into your USB port and it’s ready to go. The WIDI BUD even works great on phones due to the Low Energy Bluetooth that reduces battery drain. see product specifications for full list of compatible operating systems.

The WIDI BUD dongle plays nicely with all other Bluetooth MIDI devices, including the Korg microKEY Air, nanoKEY studio, Jamstik+, Yamaha MD-BT01/UD-BT-01, Roland A-01, etc.
